poisson_generator_ps – Simulated neuron firing with Poisson process statistics - precise spike timing version with arbitrary dead times
=======================================================================================================================================
Description
+++++++++++
The ``poisson_generator_ps`` simulates a neuron firing with Poisson
statistics (with dead time), that is, exponentially distributed interspike
intervals plus constant dead time, spike events have exact timing,
that is, they are not constrained to the simulation time grid.
.. note::
This generator must be connected to all its targets using the
same synapse model. Failure to do so will only be detected at
runtime.
.. include:: ../models/stimulation_device.rst
rate
Mean firing rate (spikes/s)
dead_time
Minimal time between two spikes (ms)
Set parameters from a stimulation backend
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The parameters in this stimulation device can be updated with input
coming from a stimulation backend. The data structure used for the
update holds one value for each of the parameters mentioned above.
The indexing is as follows:
0. dead_time
1. rate
